Non-capacitative calcium entry (NCCE) contributes to cell activation in response to the occupation of G protein-coupled membrane receptors. Thrombin administration to platelets evokes the synthesis of diacylglycerol downstream of PAR receptor activation. Diacylglycerol evokes NCCE through activating TRPC3 and TRPC6 in human platelets. Although it is known that immunophilins interact with TRPCs, the role of immunophilins in the regulation of NCCE remains unknown. Platelet incubation with FK506, an immunophilin antagonist, reduced OAG-evoked NCCE in a concentration-dependent manner, an effect that was independent on the inactivation of calcineurin (CaN). FK506 was unable to reduce NCCE evoked by OAG in platelets from TRPC6-/- mice. In HEK-293 cells overexpressing TRPC6, currents through TRPC6 were altered in the presence of FK506. We have found interaction between FKBP38 and other FKBPs, like FKBP25, FKBP12, and FKBP52 that were not affected by FK506, as well as with calmodulin (CaM). FK506 modified the pattern of association between FKBP25 and TRPCs as well as impaired OAG-evoked TRPC3 and TRPC6 coupling in both human and mouse platelets. By performing biotinylation experiments we have elucidated that FKBP25 and FKBP38 might be found at different cellular location, the plasma membrane and the already described intracellular locations. Finally, FKBP25 and FKBP38 silencing significantly inhibits OAG-evoked NCCE in MEG-01 and HEK293 cells, while overexpression of FKBP38 does not modify NCCE in HEK293 cells. All together, these findings provide strong evidence for a role of immunophilins, including FKBP25 and FKBP38, in NCCE mediated by TRPC6.
